VMware vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager 1.0 released

One of the new cool announcement at VMworld 2012 in Barcelona was the support for managing Hyper-V servers using the web client. There has always been a fling (vCenter XVP Manager and Converter) for this but it has now become an extra feature. VMware has now released version 1.0 for free.

VMware vCenter Multi-Hypervisor Manager is a component that enables support for heterogeneous hypervisors in VMware vCenter Server. It provides the following benefits to your virtual environment:

  • An integrated platform for managing VMware and third-party hypervisors from a single interface.
  • A hypervisor choice for the different business units in your organization to accommodate their specific needs.
  • No single hypervisor vendor lock-in.

When you add a third-party host to vCenter Server, all virtual machines that exist on the host are discovered automatically, and are added to the third-party hosts inventory.

More information on the requirements and how to install can be found in the release notes.
